Global's Pipe Holder (6/15)



  1. At this point I'm just hoping to get a credit let alone a response from them so I can use it and be done with them for good. I mean if they can't even fill my Hi Metal VF-4 order, what is the possibility they will fill my DX order?!
  2. Has there been a survey here to see how many active members have been screwed over by NY? I still have two outstanding orders with them and one isn't even DX-related. I have an HMR VF-4 that they still haven't shipped. The other is for a DX VF-1S and a set of Super/Strike parts.
  3. Ok, thanks for the heads up.
  4. Haven't posted anything in years but I wanted to know if anyone else has had trouble getting their order filled for the DX VF-1S from Nippon-Yasan? I put in a pre-order a year ago for it and the Strike Parts for the November release which came and went. When I contacted them in December, I was told that I had to wait for the reissue of the Strike Parts in April. Well, that came and went and I've heard nothing from them. I even ordered the HMR VF-4G in October and I have not received a shipping notification on that either. I sent them inquiries a couple days ago but they haven't responded. I'm starting to worry that I'm going to get screwed on both these orders.

    What doesn't make sense is they're bringing out the DX version but slowing down on the HMRs. I give them credit for putting out large figures like The Monster, Glaug, and Regults but please finish the Destroids and the SDF/DYRL VF-1 line. I picked up extra Destroids to support the line hoping that they release the last two.

    Is anyone doing custom HMR side covers for Battroid mode? It bugs me that Bandai would include the part to cover the area around the head but not side covers.
  7. I'm looking at this and not liking how the black panels behind the hands that rotate out in fighter mode look so small compared to the YAMATO 1/48, which I think was more anime-accurate. I can't tell but do they even have the detail like YAMATO's? That's one of the issues I have with the V2 1/60 which scales back on some of the molded details of the 1/48. Even the HMRs top the V2 1/60 with more molded detail. I hope this Bandai 1/48 has better detail under the back end in GERWALK mode which is another letdown of the V2 1/60.

    Hi, I just pm'ed you about a trade. I got two lefts.
  9. I got the clear one, and I'm almost positive it comes with Hikaru. By the way, since I don't have a 1/60 Angelbirds that isn't buried in storage, did these not come with the Angelbirds stickers for the legs like the 1/48 version? If so, did anyone make any custom stickers/decals?
  10. Man, what a debacle! And I thought trying to keep up with Yamato's releases would be hard on my wallet. I missed out on the Renewal's and just can't bring myself to pay the scalper prices for them. Having to play early bird for the newer releases is ridiculous as well. I'll just be happy with the VF-27 Brera/Grace Valks I was fortunate to get for Frontier. I'm sure Bandai will reissue these later or years from now for an anniversary. Maybe Yamato will get the license once Bandai is done with it.
  11. Tried to watch Archer, but it hasn't really grabbed me. On top of that, as much as I like H. Jon Benjamin's voice, it doesn't seem to fit the character physically. I keep picturing Coach McGuirk, Bob, or Carl, or even himself as himself. Odd-looking characters, basically.
  12. How are the VF-27's holding up with all of you? I totally avoided the VF-25's and only picked up the VF-27 Brera/Grace. Have kept them in the boxes the whole time since I don't have display room for them. Has there been any info about V.2's on these?
  13. Yes, there were weathered and non-weathered versions of the three Mac Plus GN-U's and the Fast Pack parts.
  14. That robotic fish-thing looks like something out of the Darius shooting games.
